Shaky way to check on ocean warming

The rumble of earthquakes far below the surface of the ocean are far more interesting than just a way of understanding the Earth’s geology, say US and Chinese researchers. They’ve developed a way to use those seismic waves to measure ocean warming around the world.

The technique, called seismic ocean thermometry, could provide wide-ranging measurements of temperatures at depths of over 2000 metres, says a team led by Wenbo Wu from the California Institute of Technology, US. And that will assist in measuring the rates and patterns of ocean warming and its effects on climate change.

The team tested their technique in the East Indian Ocean, where they uncovered a 10-year warming trend that exceeds previous estimates. Their results are published in the journal Science.

Seismic ocean thermometry isn’t a new idea. The basic principles were first proposed about 40 years ago but only progressed slowly. Ocean acoustic work
